Republican leader Kevin McCarthy has vowed to launch an investigation into the bombshell findings from Special Counsel John Durham if the GOP takes back the House after the 2022 midterms.
Durham’s latest filing puts the probe close to Hillary Clinton as she promoted a false story tied to the DNS monitoring.
Durham also put the scandal at the feet of Democrat President Joe Biden’s National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan.
Sullivan also promoted the false story about Alfa Bank communicating with the Trump organization that came from the DNS monitoring.
Durham also made it known that Joe Biden and Barack Obama were briefed on the intelligence regarding Hillary’s plot.
Kevin said: “Special Counsel John Durham’s continued investigation into the Russia hoax is essential to getting to the truth and protecting our democracy, and because he has already uncovered several troubling findings.
“It’s clear that Congress must exercise its oversight responsibilities as well.
“Democrats and legacy media may want to sweep this alarming report under the rug.
“But if House Republicans earn the majority, we will use our oversight tools to determine whether federal funds were used.
“Whether federal office-holders abused their power.
“And investigate other disturbing elements of this spying scheme to ensure nothing like it ever happens again.
Republican Study Committee Chair Rep. Jim Banks of Indiana said:
“Where there’s smoke, there’s fire and if the involvement of the Biden campaign, his national security advisor Jake Sullivan, and others in the secret surveillance of President Trump is as it appears, this is a five-alarm blaze.
“Nixon spied on a political committee; Democrats spied on the duly-elected President.
“They aren’t in the same ballpark and Congress needs to act accordingly.”
Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) said:
“And we are continuing to look at what further information there may be around this.
“I do think that when you look at and the connect the dots on this, you know, Sussmann and what he had then, of course, Marc Elias, Jake Sullivan.
“So we’ll wait until we get more information.”
Rep. Michael Turner (R-OH), the top Republican on the House Intelligence Committee, said:
“We have to get to the truth.
“I mean, this is a threat to our democracy itself.
“It doesn’t matter really which political campaign this is or which political party this is.
“This is so wrong and allegations of such level of illegal activity that goes directly to our faith in our own government that the truth must be found.
“Durham is doing a great job.
“I appreciate that he’s got this in the court system and is trying to bring this to light.
“But we have to, to get the bottom of this.
“We will certainly use every tool that we have on the Intelligence Committee, and I think certainly Jim Jordan on the Judiciary Committee and others, we will make certain that we use every aspect of congressional power to get to the bottom of this.”
